Dead Wood on Mt. Saint Helen’s

What remains near Mt. Saint Helens was probably little compared to what was there before the eruption. There is still new growth that is coming in but this is one of the many dead trees lying in the pumice stone covered hills.

Saint Helens

Traveling with some black and white film gives me a different perspective then shooting digital color. The landscapes out west sometimes just look great at angles in black and white and detail and shadows just get drawn out more. The volcano was a lot taller but a lot of its top is gone since the eruption. Closer to the volcano you can see the difference in the landscape, no more tall trees but small plants and pumice stone areas.
